The focus only have cruise buttons on steering wheel. However the bluetooth is controlled on voice activated button stalk. You would need bluetooth module .as yours is titanium you may already have loom. You also need mic .remove maplight & feel for mic or loom.

I installed a (brand new) Mondeo MK4.5 steering wheel in my previous Focus MK2.

However this is not plug and play at all.

Mechanically the Mondeo MK4/MK4.5 steering wheel is a direct fit to the Focus MK2/MK2.5. However all electrics of the Mondeo MK4/MK4.5 are different from the Focus MK2/MK2.5. Ford uses resistance circuits for the Cruise Control and the radio remote functions. Unfortunately the resistance values are different for most Ford models.This basically means that literally all of the circuit boards inside all switches need to be modified to match the correct resistance values of the Focus MK2/MK2.5.

Another problem is that the clockspring of the Focus MK2/MK2.5 has less wiring than needed for all functions of the Mondeo MK4/MK4.5 steering wheel. This can be solved by some modifications of the clockspring and designing a circuitry that communicates multiple functions by only using 2 wires.

 

I only used new parts which I bought from Ebay and Ford dealers in Eastern Europe (because of the large price difference). Parts alone costed me approximately €350,-. Next to this it took a lot of my time (a few hours a day for approximately 3 Months) to make all buttons fully functional. It took a lot of research, development and testing to make all buttons work correctly. 

However it was definetely worth the money and effort.

Knobs are from ebay around £15 or less.
As for carbon black trim its from focus rs. Obviously not cheap & rare find. Although the radio surround was different .i have manual heater & trim that came is for digital climate control so had bought standard silver & had it hydro dipped . If your referring to the pic above then its not my car.
